THE dulcet tones of Glenrothes youngsters were broadcast loud and clear across the the Kingdom this week as part of a series of festive radio programmes.

Pupils from the Warout Primary School choir gave their own unique version of ‘Santa’s getting Fit for Christmas’ in the first of 11 shows that run from now until Christmas Eve.

The 36-strong choir were one of only three Fife schools chosen to be included in the special breakfast show broadcasts which go out on Forth One radio.

Every year presenters, Boogie and Arlene get a selection of local schools to come on the station and perform a Christmas Carol.

And having heard about the search for singing youngsters, teacher Pamela Beaton, who organises the choir alongside fellow teacher Hazel McNabb, decided to put the school forward.

“We were staggered when we found out that the children had been chosen, and very excited” Pamela told the Gazette.

She added: “There was a lot of practising before hand and then the children decided on which song they were going to perform.

“The radio station staff including the morning show presenters visited the school and met the kids before recording the song with them, it was fantastic and all the kids loved it, they could hardly contain themselves.

“The recording took about 45 minutes to complete and afterwards Arlene and Boogie asked four of the children to tell them a joke and asked them what they wanted for Christmas.””

A spokesman for the radio show said: “The youngsters sang fantastically well and chose a very entertaining and original song which our listeners loved.

“It was obvious that they had worked very hard in preparation for the recording and they gave everyone on the Forth One team a real warm welcome.”

On the day of the broadcast staff, pupils and parents crammed into a classroom at 7.30 a.m. for a special celebration breakfast with bacon sandwiches to listen as the youngsters efforts were broadcast live on air.

“Everyone was cheering and clapping afterwards and there was even a few tear from parents and staff, it was very emotional” said Pamela.
